Recent developments in the Czech labor market is characterized by an increasing demand for graduates in technical fields. Industrial companies, the forecast suggests that their future will miss up to thousands of professionally trained personnel. According to the Rector of VSB – Technical University of Ostrava (VSB-TUO) Ivo Vondrák but just on the other side "looks like good news for technical colleges, as this trend is likely to attract more candidates in these fields.
But even if the VSB-TUO last successfully graduated from the over two thousand students, one third of the studied economics. Another problem is that many technicians finished study does not work in your field.
According to Center for Education Policy in the Czech Republic last year came from Czech universities around 10,000 engineers, according to the same database, but there are about 1,200 registered at the Employment Office. This fact may be affected, for example, by new engineers are technically proficient few, because of technical schools usually teach more economic sectors than the technical. The reason for diminished interest in the latter direction may be that the technique is labor intensive and therefore less attractive, and vice versa for someone is not a source of high earnings.
"The future of education must design and implement such measures to encourage an interest in working in industries that historically (engineering, energy and similar) or to promote new (information technology) forms the core of the economic prosperity of our country. Industry and universities must find yourself a much deeper relationship of mutual trust and cooperation than is presently the case. At this point it appears that our high school manage to solve this problem. The last number refers to the fact that in 2009 the total volume of CZK 96 million marketing contract research contracts generated 30 million, while in 2010 the figure rose to 126 million with a total share of science and research CZK 65 million. Compared with successful countries, particularly Scandinavia, but still lagging, "said Rector of VSB-TUO Ivo Vondrak.
